My flour gets pretty hot-is it my WonderMill?
Whenever I grind my wheat, I have to put it in the freezer,first, so that when I mill it, it won't get so hot. It can get to 120F!!
I have a Wondermill that is about 3 yrs old and it has pretty much done this from the start. I love bread made from my fresh ground flour but I have to say I am not impressed by the Wondermill. It was not cheap! It is made with a very flimsy plastic and static is a real problem when you are trying to empty the plastic receptacle. The internal cup depended on a very thin plastic to hold it in place by twisting the cup slightly and wedging it up against the thin flange. You can guess how long that lasted and I prob should have returned it but didn't.I may do a different post looking for a recommendation for an older-non-plastic grain mill.
So is this heating of the flour a typical experience? I do grind on a pretty fine setting ("pastry" on the dial) but that is how I like the flour texture.
